Please feel free to discuss your requirements with our reception staff, who will be able to advise if a long appointment is necessary (after checking with a doctor, if necessary).
New Patients: New patients are welcome at the Practice. Please arrive slightly before your appointment time, to complete our "new patient information" form.
Home Visits: Home visits are subject to prior arrangement with your treating doctor.
Repeat Prescriptions and New Referrals: Because your health and medical needs may change over time, a consultation will generally be required to obtain a repeat prescription or specialist referral.
Test Results (Blood tests, X-rays, etc.): Although the practice will endeavour to contact patients regarding serious or dangerous test results, it is the Patient's own responsibility to follow-up their test results. As per Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia recommendations and independent legal advice, test results cannot be discussed by phone, and a consultation is required, unless prior arrangements are made with the doctor who ordered the tests.
Telephone Policy: As phone calls are highly disruptive, doctors generally cannot take calls when in consultation. Exceptions to this include matters of clinical urgency, and professional calls from other doctors. If a doctor is in consultation, it may be possible for patients to wait on hold, or request a call back. Unfortunately, doctors cannot guarantee that they will be able to return calls quickly.
Reminder System: The Practice is committed to preventative care. You may be issued with a reminder notice from time to time, offering you preventative health care services. If you do not want to participate in this system, please notify our Receptionists.
